My journey...Day 49 of 91 of my <<<Dial it In - Baseline, 40% reduction, 40% reduction Experiment>>>

->July 31st Weight 216 BF 23.4% (The day before the beginnging of the experiment [I usual enter my weight and body fat into a spreadsheet when I get into the office on Monday mornings. I use an OMRON Fat Loss Monitor HBF-306C to get the BF number] Aug 1st was a Tuesday)
->Sept 19th Weight 208.8 BF 21.4% -- I reduced my BF by 1.6% in 50 days

**** Big Picture ****
Feb 27 - July 31st, 154 days, I tippy toed through the Tulips, lost 2.2 measly pounds, reduced body fat by 2.9%
Jul 31 - Sep 19th, 50 days, Laser focused, lost an additional 7.2 pounds in 1/3 the time, reduced body fat another 1.6%

Date Lbs BMI BF
2/27/17 218.2 30.5 26.3
9/18/17 208.8 29.1 21.8
Totals: Down 9.4 lbs (Ok with it), under 30 BMI (what ever!), lost 4.5% body fat(Yessss!!) ...BMI is for the birds. The lower body fat number is why I am wearing 34 waist slacks. Onwards.

My journey.

I should be in Onederland by the end of this experiment AND more importantly my BF should be between 17 & 20%. This is exciting!

The trend is your friend.

After this experiment, I will see if I can within 6 - 8 months, get my BF to 14 to 17%. According the the American Council on Exercise, this would put me in the fitness category (Does running from your family after stealing a cupcake from a tray on the table count as exercise?)

Let's go!!!!!!

It only counts as exercise if you're caught... else, its just "falling off the wagon", @Chesgreen!

Hey .. I was gonna say one of those two things before I peeked! WAAAH. No fair!

Nice goals Ches and super progress!! I like your time line too...totally doable (but not easy). When you get to 14% - 17% you'll see that there are other challenges, most times not as difficult as getting there but sometimes even harder. Good luck mate!!!

@rhills 14.7% BF, You da man!!! @ 371-184, if I ran out the house straight into a 5k @ my current weight, I will have calories to spare. @JB as I continue to think wine is still fruit, you will probably get there again 1st - I am 207.4 today. No worries..

Welcome Ches and hold my hand while running from family after stealing cupcake (lol). We can do it :-)

@Steven, I like hard things. Easy is boring. I am willing to stretch out my timeline as well if needed. Lifestyle changes. My body will look and feel amazing by then. It will be hard to keep a shirt on in the summer by then.

Thanks Gary. I haven't run in almost 3 weeks. If I run tonight it will be a double win because my last meal was 19 hrs 45 min ago. #RUNNINGWHILEFASTED
